TRAINING FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES BY HELICOPTER IN INDIA
Medical cooperation between the FAM and India is important for many years. It begins in 2015 with a FAMx forum on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and new developments in cancer management. Followed in 2016 by the signature of a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in infectious diseases and cardiology with the aim of developing joint research projects and patient care, thena second FAMx forum on the management of traumatic emergencies, cardiology and infectious diseases.
It is in this rich historical context that it was decided to continue this cooperation by organizing training in emergency and disaster medicine in New Delhi, in partnership with AAIIMS India.
